Dear Sherry and entire Klonisky family,

I am sending my condolence with overwhelming sadness and loneliness. Mr. Klonisky was someone I had been looking up to all those over three decades, and his voice and smile always encouraged me and brightened my life specially when the life was tough.

His heart was larger than life.
Miss him terribly.

Best regards,

Words however kind, can't mend your heartache,
but those who care and share your loss wish you comfort and peace of mind.

May you find strength in the love of family and in the warm embrace of friends.

He is in the arms of his beloved Betty Lou Forever.

Dear Sherry and family, I was so sorry to hear about your dad's passing. He was a true friend and I always looked forward to seeing him and your mother when I was back to visit. I had hoped to see him in August, but will be sad to not see him there welcoming everyone on their way to the Heritage Day Festival. Please know my thoughts and prayers are with all of you and he will be great missed as is your mother. God wanted them reunited and now there will be 2 more angels watching over you. Joyce Reitz
